LRPP port entry, light winds, tight start box, bigger foils, momentum and more practice at starting in race conditions......JS has to be feeling pitbullish methinks. That's if we get any wind at all.
There was a point on the first leg in the second race where they both point very high with speed in the low 30's... NO talked about it during the coverage. NZ was able to keep close, but lost ground. Her is a screen shot of that leg:For what I've seen in the first two races yesterday ETNZ has a fu**ing good high mode. Basically the same of LR. If they managed to get both no chance for LR.
I have the Z7 and love it, but you have a much better telephoto lens, and have an excellent track record of great work. Keep it up.Thanks Dolphin, Nikon D7200 with Nikon AF-S 200-500mm zoom.
I carry a second D7000 body with 18-140mm zoom, for wide shots.
I suffer from severe size-envy when I am amongst the pros with their massive lenses, and would love a better body, but I suppose that's just natural when you get to my age!
Wot! No herbie? Will spitbull be ok?The difference is that this time no modifications are allowed.
I noticed that and wondered would they hang for a bit longer to avoid losing further distance with the tack at a crucial time in the race. Shows how much I know but that's what I was thinking.There was a point on the first leg in the second race where they both point very high with speed in the low 30's...

Not good Bill, most weather reports I can see suggest 6 max.The sparrow that just flew past my house appears to be the main source of wind this morning.
Sigh....Glorious day in Auckland today.
Lots of sun but no wind.
Suggest little chance of a race today.
Its from your local weather bureau so it should be better than Windy or any of the other free forecasts that just regurgitate GFS out of the USOn that we could race. I hope it is right (or more wind).
You forget Auckland is located on a relatively narrow strip of land with two sizeable harbours one each side and especially on hot still days two competing onshore breezes.Its from your local weather bureau so it should be better than Windy or any of the other free forecasts that just regurgitate GFS out of the US
Do you want to have a chance of missing one of the most interesting races so far.OK Kiwis important request, should I set my alarm and espresso maker for 0400 or may I sleep peacefully until 0700? Merci!
